Title Metrology Measurements of the DSTO Transonic Wind Tunnel Store Support Arm.
Publication Date Dec 2013
Media Count 35p
Personal Author A. Blandford J. Clayton P. O'Connor
Abstract The Defence Science and Technology Organisation operates a transonic wind tunnel which has a six degree of freedom store support system. This support system enables models under test to be translated and rotated in the test section to predefined positions and orientations. The accuracy of the translational and rotational readings from the store support system must be checked periodically to ensure that they are within acceptable uncertainty limits, and therefore provide quality assurance for test clients. This document details metrology measurements that were conducted during February and March 2013 on the store support together with subsequent results and adjustments applied to the associated calibration curves.
